Sneezing and running can be quite comical. :) It turned out to be a not-so-stellar run. My legs felt heavy and achy then my Garmin decided that it couldn't hold another piece of information midway in the run. I stopped and deleted some old stuff then reset the intervals to 1:1 (1 minute running:1 minute walking)
I only got in 2.5 slow miles. I know everyone has bad runs. It's just part of life. So looking on the bright side: at least I got out there and burned some calories and I got in some miles. Yay!
For the past few days I have been starving. Not just cravings but all out hunger. I could eat anything: fruit, chips, a salt block, meat, cheese, yogurt....just about anything. Maybe it's my metabolism kicking in? Maybe I'm about to drop some pounds? Maybe it's all the extra exercise? I don't know but I do know that I'm having trouble not eating the paint off the walls.
I know protein is a big help with feeling full so I got a Fiber One vanilla yogurt and added a scoop of Jay Robb chocolate protein powder and stirred it until blended.
Added some fat free whipped cream and a cherry to make it look pretty. :) The taste? Super sweet. A little too sweet, actually. But it helped with the hunger for a while.
Then Zumba on the Wii. I know last time I did this I hurt my back a little but
Sat down with the family and watched Modern Family. That has to be the most uncomfortable episode ever. My kids were in there laughing from time to time which just added to the uncomfortable feeling. It was funny though. :)
The hunger issues continued into the night. So did the sneezing. So I had a cup of sleepytime tea and a little bit of Nyquil. Funny thing but I'm never hungry while I'm sleeping. Amazing. :) That's one way to deal with it, right?
Nothing amazing planned for today. I think I'm going to take it easy and just go for a walk and later some strength training for the lower body. Hoping the Hunger Monster stays away today.
